08:01 AM ET 01.09 | After reportedly spending more than four hours discussing the future of the Rams, Jeff Fisher left the city, flying commercial, without a contract. According to multiple sources, Fisher likes what he sees in the Rams on several levels, and that came into sharper focus Sunday as the day developed. As Fisher weighs a variety of factors, those sources indicated there were more plusses than minuses with the Rams, particularly as compared to Miami. He likes Kroenke, he likes the resources available with the Rams, he likes Bradford, he likes Chris Long, Steven Jackson, etc. But two sources have indicated that the potential of a move by the franchise to Los Angeles is a concern.

Back to the Future?

Why is LA a problem? When everyone thought that Norv was a goner and Fisher was favored to replace him, one of the pluses mentioned was he was a SoCal guy... does < 100 miles distance from SD change this?

Peter King said they're moving to England.

Cannot see why a provision cannot be made in the contract to allow Fisher "out" if the Rams move or have a lame-duck season in STL. Hate to see them go.....not sure what STL would do with the Edwards Jones Dome if the Rams leave.

Looks like the Interns are heavily upset at the Steelers embarrassing loss. They pull yesterday's Tebow thread and today refuse to even broach the subject

Thats because we all know that Tim Tebow will never be able to pass well enough to ever play in the NFL!!!

Still, that embarrassing debacle is still worth commenting on. lol

Fisher won't get much of a chance to wear those shades if he coaches in St. Louis.

I am with you man. I don't make it here much but if you look back I am an unabashed supporter of Tebow (even though I hate those damn Gators). The man is a winner and I doubt seriously that anyone on the Steelers defense will tell you that he can't throw the rock!!

If he wears them in LA, they won't distiguish him at all.

And if he goes to Miami, everyone will think he's Tony Sparano with more hair.

So that makes 3 teams on the list of possibles moving to LA,[ Jacksonville, Minnesota, St.Louis ] Any more Rumors out there ? I think it would be great if the Rams came back to LA.

It's nothing against LA. He just doesnt want to go through a franchise move again.

Neither to the fans in St. Louis. But there aren't enough of them, I guess.
